The ProTool Telescopic No-Twist Extension Pole

Most extension poles require a very tight twist in order to keep the telescopic sections from moving in and out. This puts a great deal of pressure on the collars. ProTool’s innovative No-Twist Extension Pole contains special gear mechanisms inside the pole that allow a light twisting motion to adjust the length and keep the pole from moving while in use. This pole is available in 8, 14, 20, 32, 39, 50 ft. Shop for the No-Twist Pole.

Seen On the Job

New technology becomes available every year to make window cleaning faster and easier, but there are some tools that stand the test of time.

Seen on the streets of Bristol, were some of your fellow professionals using wood sectional ladders. It’s evident that they were built to last.

What you don’t see is a water-fed pole. The windows and panes are old, which means they may be more prone to leaking. These professionals knew that and opted to use traditional tools to protect the customer’s property.

Clean Faster with the H2Pro Truck Mount for Pure Water

  • 12v RO Boost Pump with fill detection to stop running the pump

  • Remote Key Fob that controls the water flow for Wash (low) and Rinse (high) water flow and on/off

An optional Chemical Delivery Tank allows you to add a shot of detergent to get windows clean faster.

Some glass and hard surface exteriors are difficult to clean with with pure water due to different residues on the glass.  Jet fuels, exhaust near highways, pollen, and others.  

This chemical delivery tank allows the user of a waterfed pole to run this auxilary pole hose up their pole, connect to the brush via a secondary set of jets and introduce soap or other surfactants to the surface.  With the press of a button the soap comes through the brush and turns off with another press of the button.  Pure water can be flowing through the brush at the same time and the soap is off during the rinse.

The H2Pro Chemical Delivery System by RHG Products features an 8 gallon holding tank, 12v battery powered delivery pump, 300′ of 5/16″ chemical delivery line and is controlled by a remote key fob.

These can be added to the H2Pro Tank System and Fill N Go tank systems at time of purchase, added by the owner of a Tank System after the fact, or purchased as a stand alone unit.

Don’t be dependent on the local water pressure. Always get exactly the water you need at the brush with the H2Pro Tank pure water filter and delivery system.
